It’s that time of the year. For the past four years, I have been fortunate enough that my entire family (minus my dog…) has been able to attend parents weekend every year. Being from Missouri, I generally am only able to go home on longer school breaks. It’s great that midway through my fall semester I am able to see family again, show them around LA, and give them a better idea of what cool classes/projects/extracurriculars I have been working on.

Over parent’s weekend my family always wants to do a few things: 1. Eat at Jack’s n Joes (breakfast place nearby USC) 2. Eat at La Taquiza (Mexican place nearby USC) 3. See the beach 4. Attend the USC football game. We were able to do all of that and more, and my family and I were able to have an amazing weekend as usual.
